    2 questions - same form. How to increase the response box size & not submit when return is hit

    Asked by crmdgn on December 16, 2012 at 07:59 PM

    I just created a form that gives the user three response boxes.  1) How can I increase the size of the response boxes.  They currently only allow one short line to be visible.  2)  When <return> is hit after one question is asked, the form is submitted.  I do not want the form submitted until the "submit" button is clicked.  I could not find answers to either of these.  Thanks for any help to this JotForm neophyte.

    1. You are currently using Text Box, I think the right tool for that is Text Area. Text Area allows multi-line text inputing and it can hold unlimited number of characters. Check this:

    2. Make those fields required so they can't submit the form leaving those fields empty. See this visual guide:
